Guy Ritchie is still one of my favourite directors and I’m not backing up on that statement any time soon. Sure, love for him stems deeply from adoring Snatch, but his directing style is still something I enjoy despite his latest movies not being perfect. So yes, I think his style is still on point in King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, despite the movie lacking instant appeal and uniqueness. And while I will always have nostalgic appreciation towards Ritchie, for me, this mythical block buster felt flat and empty, even though it tried hard to hit all the right marks.
It has come to my attention that the year 2017 has almost hit its mid-point and with that in mind, I figured I’d recap what has happened movie wise this year so far. This post is inspired by the popular Mid-Year Book Freak Out tag that I’ve seen around in the book community but since I’m still all about being a movie blogger at heart, I decided to turn it into a Midyear Movie Madness instead. So this is a post that will recap the last 6 months of 2017 in terms of movies, and to make things more interesting, I’m only sticking to movies I saw in the theater!
There are a few spoilers ahead, you’ve been warned.
Since nothing important has happened in these past few weeks, I again skipped a week and bringing you a recap of the past two weeks. Nothing has happened really, but then again, nothing ever really happens with my life these days. I just work, read, and wait for my still pending operation which means I’ve now officially been waiting for 1,5 months – past the time I was promised to have this operation. Oh, the health care system is so much fun.
